February 2015 is Stop Smoking Month

For the entire month of February, we ask everyone to consider quitting smoking. There are several ways you can do this. The first is via an e-cigarette. The data and scientific studies have not conclusively shown that e-cigs are healthy, but it is a better alternative than to puffing carcinogens from a real cigarette. The only drawback is that you have to continue to buy "cartridges" in order to replenish your nicotine supply. Just be sure to be safe. You can always us a V2 discount code to help save money on your monthly purchases. The second route is the nicotine patch. It can be purchased over the counter and via a Doctor's prescription. We highly reccomend you speak to your physician prior to engaging in any smoking cessation therapy. The nicotine patch is placed on your body and it delivers a targeted dose of nicotine throughout the day. There are usually 3 steps: 21mg, 14mg, and finally 7mg. Each step is usually recommended you take 2 weeks to complete. The third way to help quit smoking is to see your doctor and have him/her prescribe a smoking cessation pill. The pills are designed to lessen and ultimately kill your bodys craving for nicotine. However, there can be risks associated with the pills as well. We strongly urge you to talk to your doctor to see which path is right for you.
